  • Each time you do a test, your result is recorded
  • Your latest result will appear at the top

  • Always use a pen, workbook and calculator when doing lessons and tests
  • It is best to use headphones when listening to lessons
  • It is best to view lessons in full screen mode
  • Pause, rewind and repeat lessons as often as you like
  • You may need to listen to some lessons more than once
  • Don’t think you can’t do physical science if you don’t get it right the first time!
  • When doing tests, work out each answer using pen and paper before entering the answer
  • Never guess answers when doing tests
  • Study the worked out answers carefully as this is an important part of the learning process
  • If there are words that you do not understand, use the Dictionary
  • Summarising the Notes will help you remember the work better
  • Remember, science is about understanding the theory beforeyou can solve a problem
  • You Can Do Science, just persevere!
